Perham-Dent Public School District invites all community members to attend a grand opening for Perham High School on Sunday, Aug. 26.

After several months of design planning and construction to breaking ground in May 2017, the site for the new 158,000 SF 9-12 high school facility has been transformed. This fall, Perham High School will open its new doors to over 500 students with diverse pathways to the future.

The district encourages all community members to attend the event and experience the unique spaces and features of this facility - various commons and academic spaces, full-service kitchen, fine arts area, STEM trades areas, gymnasium, and more. The facility is designed for a collaborative delivery of curriculum for all students, including specific models that help with college and career preparation or cross-curricular teaching of similar subjects. This delivery is supported by flexible spaces for both small group and large group instruction. According to Mitch Anderson, Superintendent for ISD #549, "it provides the functionality we want for today's education...we're excited to begin a new era of education."

The grand opening for this facility includes an open house from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. with a dedication ceremony beginning at 1 p.m. Attendees will be able to go on a self-guided tour of the facility during the open house portion of the day. Information and fun facts about the building will be available, and there will be tour guides stationed throughout to help assist and answer questions.
